Issue 9 of The Happy Hypocrite, #ACCUMULATORPLUS, is the journal’s first issue to solicit sound-based and sound-inspired contributions alongside experimental images and text. Opening the journal to music, and exploring radio as a radical method of distribution, #ACCUMULATORPLUS searches (amidst the crushing effects of a rent- and debt-based economy) for inspiring ways of resisting the cooptation of radical culture—by revisiting recent underground histories spanning rave, pirate radio, Detroit techno and east London grime. The archive pages are dedicated to the memory of the co-founder of Kiss FM, Colin Faver—an organizer, promoter, designer and musical pioneer. This publication, edited by Hannah Sawtell and director Maria Fusco, contains contributions and new work by Morehshin Allahyari, Jennifer Lucy Allan, Franco Berardi, John Cussans, Jlin, John Lawrence, Kieron Livingstone, Angela McClanahan, Louis Moreno, Emily Pope and Ruth Angel Edwards, Anthony “Shake” Shakir, Tai Shani and Jonathan P. Watts.

Abstract from the Concrete
Marxist geographer and professor of anthropology and geography at the Graduate Center, City University, NY, David Harvey is featured in the latest addition of Harvard Graduate School of Design’s cutting-edge book series, The Incidents. Harvey’s lecture opens with the fact that between 2011 and 2013 China consumed 50 percent more concrete than the United States did in the entire 20th-century. In Abstract from the Concrete, Harvey investigates why. Spiraling outward—geographically and materially—he travels from the building industry in China to the foreclosed housing market in the United States to the automobile industry in São Paolo and back again. The “why” emerges as a direct result of “anti-value”—of capital in crisis, a situation he contends is intrinsic to capital and capital cities today. Included also is an interview with David Harvey by Mariano Gomez Luque and Daniel Ibañez. The Incidents is an ongoing series archiving events and lectures at the Graduate School of Design between 1936 and tomorrow!
